Spear of the Nation

Gauteng, 2124, South Africa
TEL: 27 11 463-9905

A tour guide and amateur historian who first visited Johannesburg’s impoverished townships in the 1990’s as a peacekeeper, Robin Binckes has since devoted himself to bringing attention—and travelers—to the often-overlooked township of Alexandra, in the city’s north, through his company, Spear of the Nation. It’s a tribute to his passion that his global clients are frequently inspired to give back, and with their donations, Binckes has been able to build and run a day-care center, sponsor the care of local AIDS orphans, and even establish an area soccer team.
